Brix Qualifies 20th Saturday at Barber Motorsports Park

LEEDS, Ala., July 29 - Harrison Brix of San Jose, Calif. qualified 20th Saturday afternoon at Barber Motorsports Park here for Sunday's Porsche 250 presented by Bradley Arant Rolex Series race.

Brix's fastest lap in the 15-minute qualifying session was a 1:24.820 which he turned on his fourth lap around the 2.3-mile, 16-turn road course during the 15-minute qualifying session. His qualifying speed was 97.618 miles per hour for the Feeds the Need/Doran Racing DORAN JE4 Ford No. 77. The yellow and black car carries the colors of the Kodak EasyShare System, Amp'd Mobile and SIRIUS.

"We continue to try to develop some things we've been working on, but today wasn't one of the days to showcase the DORAN's true potential," Brix said afterwards.

"Our Ford engine is strong; we don't have any power issues, and that's important," he noted.

"We'll just try to stay out of trouble tomorrow and finish," he added.

Brix's co-driver is Terry Borcheller of Vero Beach, Fla.

Anything can happen in racing, as proven by what happened to polesitter Colin Braun and Christian Fittipaldi after the checkered flew on the session. Contact between the two occurred as they tried to make their way down pit road, although neither car appeared to be damaged badly. Braun's pole-winning time was a 1:22.022 (100.948 mph).
